"Give us a twirl Anthea."

I am doing a twirl here. See I have revamped my blog (when I say "I" what I mean is an incredibly talented digital genius-person at Penguin called Sarah-Elizabeth Daley did things with code and photoshop that made my eyes water and I sat next to her and made insightful comments like "I still want it to be pink.") Likey? It is very exciting because I have been thinking about revamping the design since I came back to Blogland but I had this vision of accidentally pressing "delete" and everything disappearing.Not having proper computer support is one of the worse things about working on your own from home - I miss those nice men who'd say "Have you tried turning it off and on again?" Sarah made me brave though. She copied out numbers on a piece of paper and assured me with these magic numbers she could put it all back if I didn't like the new stuff. Apparently my blog was "very 2000". I looked at her blankly when she said this. I suspect this was her equivalent of me referencing the Victorian era. When you are as old as me however, 2,000 seems like yesterday. Anyway I took a deep breath and with Sarah's encouragement let go of the side and have doggie-paddled out into 2012.

Looks pretty good to me. I have changed mine four times since this time yesterday. Still not happy with it. I'd like a fairy like yours, Wifey.

Loving the new look. My poor old blog is very dated. I am technologically challenged and using a computer which for sure came from the victorian era

I am going to enlist the help of a much cleverer friend to update mine - I would be sure to lose the whole blooming lot

It's lovely! Very 2012.

Unlike mine, that is very country-bumpkin!

Very nice too, although now I am failing to remember what it looked like before.

Love it, love it, love it!
Very inclusive, very friendly and very pretty to boot. Don't know why but it reminds me of a certain friend of mine... X

Very fresh and pretty.

Glad it's not too 2012 all black, white with dash of turquoise or purple. I'm keeping mine the same 'shabby chic'

Am glad too you're keeping the trad blogroll. Especially as I'm on it ;) Thank you
